Twangfest is back! June 9-12, 2010

April isn’t the cruelest month. It’s the twangiest month.

Or at least it feels that way, what with the announcement of the Twangfest 14 lineup this week.

To quote KDHX DJ John Wendland: “This is huge.”

Headliners include: Jason & the Scorchers, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Blue Rodeo, Big Smith, and the Detroit Cobras, with Ha Ha Tonka, Shannon McNally & Hot Sauce, JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound, These United States and Magnolia Summer joining in the twanghem.

Dates are Wednesday, June 9 through Saturday, June 12, 2010 at the Tap Room and the Duck Room. As always, Twangfest is presented by 88.1 KDHX. Get the all the details and purchase your Friends of Twangfest “Dan Packs” or budget 4-night passes at

But wait, there’s more. This year, if you order the Friends of Twangfest Package, you’ll not only get badge access to all four nights, a t-shirt, a poster, and a CD, you’ll also get an invitation to a Special House Concert and Reception with Warner Hodges and Jason Ringenberg of Jason & the Scorchers. Seating for this reception is limited to the first 70 Friends, so don’t wait.

This really is huge. See you in June!
